MediaMixer webinars

From September 2013 to April 2014 MediaMixer will offer a monthly 1hr live presentation on a key MediaMixer topic. Each presentation will be streamed live at, and here you will also find details of upcoming presentations and links to recording of past presentations. Live viewers may post their questions to the speaker via Twitter or TitanPad – just tweet @project_mmixer during the talk or use the embedded public TitanPad!

September 9th, 2013 1500 CET What is MediaMixing? – making media more valuable for its owner and more useful for its consumer MediaMixer is an EU funded project to support organisations in enhancing their media contents to create greater value and extend their reach across customers, consumers and the media value chain. MediaMixer promotes new technologies which enable the fragmentation of media items into distinct parts which can be re-purposed and re-sold.In this talk, project coordinator Dr Lyndon Nixon will outline the MediaMixer vision, grounding it in organisational trends to create and re-use increasing amounts of media assets, and backing it up with a look at the limitations of current media technology solutions. He will explain how MediaMixer can support interested organisations to adopt and use new technology for working with audiovisual media.

October 2nd, 2013 1400 CET Describing Media Assets – media fragment specification and description Semantic descriptions of non-textual media available on the Web can facilitate retrieval, re-use and presentation of media assets. Semantic Web languages can represent controlled vocabularies and shared annotations of media content on the Web. By identifying concepts to consider, Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) are the building blocks of the Semantic Web. Often, particular regions of an image or particular sequences of a video need to be localized and uniquely identified in order to be used as subject or object resource in an RDF annotation. In this talk, we will first present the Media Fragment URI specification, a recent W3C recommendation that enables to uniquely identifying sub-parts of media assets in the same way that the fragment identifier in the URI can refer to part of an HTML or XML document. We will then describe models and ontologies that we will illustrate with several real world applications using semantic annotations attached to media fragments.

November 14th, 2013 1100 CET Fragmenting your Media Assets meaningfully – media analysis for fragment detection and extractionIn this webinar we will discuss a set of video processing techniques for media fragment creation and annotation. These include techniques for the temporal segmentation of the video into shots and scenes, the re-detection of appearances of specific objects throughout the video, and the detection of concepts that describe the temporal video fragments. Such techniques are the first step towards converting the raw video material into meaningful media fragments.

January 14th, 2014 1400 CET Media Fragment Re-use as a Benefit: a use case in the newsroomIn this webinar we focus on how media fragments and semantic technology benefit the media owner and consumer, as demonstrated in a use cases implemented by the project.
The Broadcast Newsroom will show the support of news editors by recommending video snippets from heterogeneous footage related to the current working focus. The solution derives a ranked list of recommendations from meta data annotated media fragments of the materials by using semantic fingerprinting, entity enrichment and

February 3rd, 2014 1130 CET Semantic Management of your Media Fragments Rights
This webinar continues with the MediaMixer semantics-based media workflow. Once media has been fragmented and fragments semantically annotated, it is time to manage them. Digital Asset Management (DAM) solutions empowered by semantic technologies help managing assets lifecycle at the fragment level. This includes copyright management to facilitate their reuse and exploitation. MediaMixer proposes the use of a copyright ontology based on semantic technologies, which models access control policies and offers the possibility of automating licence checks and filtering of available content against their terms of use. In this case, semantic technologies make it possible to go beyond Digital Rights Management and, because it is possible to model copyright through the whole media value chain, manage media rights from creation or remix to end-user consumption.

March 31st, 2014 1330 CET VideoLecturesMashup This talk will highlight the MediaMixer benefits for the e-learning video platform VideoLectures.NET. The ‘VideoLecturesMashup’ is capable of accepting a specific learning topic as input and produces as a result a mashup of fragments of learning materials from the site addressing that topic, ordered in a meaningful way. The mashup is specifically addressable and hence bookmarkable/saveable for subsequent reference and viewing. The talk will reflect on the new learning opportunities realised for online learners as a result of the MediaMixer technology. Tanja Zdolsek
